  1. Allow sites to remove edit option from left column for instructor web

    There is a left most column that says view, download, edit. That column is not customizable and some sites don't allow instructors to edit the items.

  2. If importing items from another course, prevent instructors from accidentally adding to the old course.

    When importing from the old course, that list of items that displays shows the old course info which has an option to add items to the old course. Instructors get confused and add it to the wrong course.

  6. Would like to organize items in folders versus tags on the web

    Sites who used to use Docutek miss the option of organizing items in folders. Tags don't seem to be as desirable.

  7. Allow for sorting by Article Title instead of Journal Title in the web

    Currently, Article Title is appended to the Journal Title field for displaying in the web, making it impossible to sort on instead of Journal Title.

  8. Allow sorting of tags in something other than alphabetical

    Several sites have requested this option but their examples are always Week 10 coming before Week 2 in the list. Are there other examples for needing to customize the order or is it only for the weeks?

  9. Specify the base URL for permanent links with a customization key

    This can be helpful for sites with more than one authentication method.

  10. Add a status line to the Ares main menu to be able to display error messages

    If a user is returned to the main menu because of an error, there is no way to explain why.

  11. Add call number to fields on the web used for cloning

    A site would like to add the call number field to the items tables on the web that are used for cloning/importing items into courses. The staff feel that the call number is an essential piece of info for faculty. We are not able to add this column in, or modify the tables at all, without breaking the functionality of the checkboxes.

  12. Show which staff member added a user note

    Have an "added by" field for user notes like there is for item notes.

  14. Staff would like to have scanned items automatically moved to the web

    Instead of having staff open the form in the staff client to process the items, they would like a utility to scan that folder and automatically move them.

    This could be an issue if sites are scanning ILLiad and Ares items to the same folder.

  16. Allow Ares to receive additional attributes, such as first name, last name, email, and department, from Shibboleth.

    Allow for Ares to recognize additional user attributes in remote auth headers. User status (student, faculty) would also be helpful. The info would be used to populate the user record in Ares.

  17. TemplateProcessor does not handle parameters that have a right angle bracket

    The RegEx used assumes the first angle bracket is the end of the tag but it could be a bracket inside a tag parameter.

    This was discovered internally and only affects the headers of certain tables if a site wanted to put a link in that text. We will enhance this eventually, but it's not really in the original scope of the tag options.

  19. Option to rename and hide queue names for routing in staff client

    Perhaps, an enhancement is what we need to remove:
    Route to Acquisitions
    Recall Item
    Awaiting Acquisitions Notification
    Awaiting File Type Resolution
    Awaiting Recall Processing
    Awaiting ILL Processing – unless it can be edited to show as “In ILL Processing”
